Toca Race Driver 2 : Images of the preview version

Toca Race Driver 2 : Images of the preview version

While waiting for the full video of the game to be encoded and uploaded, here are lots of images of Toca Race Driver 2, another very good racing game for the Xbox !
Update : Video online



The images are in widescreen format, not the best one for framebuffer captures. The aliasing you see here has been mostly created by the resizing process on the PC, and is totally invisible on a TV screen.

I'm not totally happy with the video. I've had a lot of problems with my deinterlacing plugin, hence the small slowdowns you may notice from time to time. Sorry about that.

Err... What aliasing? :) I must be blind or something but I think the screens look quite good. Textures aren't the best on the 'box but that shouldn't be a problem when the game is in motion. It runs much smoother than PGR2 so visually Toca RD 2 looks promising. I hope the gameplay is realistic and fun, too. So many car classes in one game is awesome but what if the controls suck? ;)

The controls are excellent. I'll post my full impressions later today, but the game is excellent. Not on par with PGR2 fun-wise, but still a great racer.

Ok. Thanks for the video. The cars seem to be a bit too light, I think. I mean it looks like they are floating on the road and jums are way too big. Don't know if it's just me but it didn't look natural. It makes me think about Sega GT 2002, which wasn't very good racer IMO. However, the sense of speed seem to be better than in PGR2 or Gran Turismo 3.

About the game

    MrWhite Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (35 minutes ago)

    MrWhite Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (38 minutes ago)

    MrWhite @KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (39 minutes ago)

    MrWhite What's this about Half Life not having decent characters? Seriously? It practically set the bar as far as that went. Alyx, Barney, Eli, G-Man to name a few. (57 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX I'm not saying it's impossible that another developer would want to do it and would do it justice. That's just rarely the case when a franchise changes hands. (3 Hours ago)
